Re: Non CW of the Day

Great photo - can even see the etched omega emblem in the middle of the hesalite. Thanks. It was just a quick snap with my phone and the front page of the paper. I hadn't noticed the logo was visible until you pointed it out. Unfortunately you can also see the gunk between the lugs. Cell phone came...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

The charging network is difficult. It was under pressure in the UK 4 years ago and somewhat unreliable and needs a major upgrade in all areas, problem is somebody needs to pay for the infrastructure, but when cars can be charged at home, and battery tech improves to the point that only long journey...

Re: What happened to CW?

Delivered today, with the packing info, order info, order number, value etc. all showing to the public. Can't say I'm a fan of CW's approach to data protection. del.jpg Calm down dear. While this is unfortunate, It's hardly 'all showing to the public' as it's been delivered by courier. And I'm sure...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

There are two other issues for me which make me totally against the new hybrid and 100% ev’s. 1. Electric really only describes the movement of energy from energy source (oil / nuclear / gas /coal/ wood burning (drax), renewables), to electric storage at the point of delivery - lithion iron battery...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

Would only buy a pure electric car when the realistic range is 200 - 250 miles in all weathers and the charging infrastructure has sufficient capacity. Your desired range is already available, albeit expensive. A Tesla model 3 with the large battery has a 325 mile range. This should easily translat...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

Anybody in Canada have a breakdown of what they had to pay in fees to DHL? CWL doesn't use DHL for shipments to Canada. All purchases now ship Royal Mail / Canada Post. With Canada Post shipments you will only pay fees and taxes IF your package is inspected by Customs. My experience has been that a...

Re: how reliable are the new microbrands?

MV is a bit of an odd duck among micros, in that they actually have a retail network. It seems that they have designs on being bigger than a Microbrand. One of the 3 US retailers is a short drive (according to Google) from San Jose in Union City. This is a rare opportunity to see a micro in the fles...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

I have no experience with this. Is this a normal thing, or do other companies usually provide this information with the shipment so that DHL isn't trying to get it from the customer (who has no reasonable grounds, on a watch or any other commercial shipment to know the value of individual components...

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

In the end I didn't back this, as I have a few other things on the radar right now, and too many in the watch box. If it had come down to the wire I would have backed it to get it over the line. Ewan is doing some great things with Newmark, and this watch deserves to get made, and hopefully keep the...

Re: It's All About Me

A few years before that 99% didn't have their phones out during the performance. How many people never truly see live performances because they are more focused on recording it than watching it.

With the exception of Laco, which was in poor taste, that was a good read.

Re: Newmark 71 Sports diver

Just my opinion, but I still think that shipping from Far East for a UK company has been the undoing of this campaign. It may well still reach the required goal, but going to be close. Can someone explain why they find this so objectionable? He can ship from the far East, and charge 300 GBP, plus 2...
